Time for un update

My home feels like a battlefield at the moment ;) We try to decide on the paint, furniture, etc. which is kinda funny with three kids. We have to repaint the rooms done by the kids, but at least they had a lot of fun. It also helps that they are going to have their own rooms, so they have fun planning ;)

The honeymoon is definitely over and we had some problems with the kids (actually all three), but after a lot of talking, talking, talking things seem to have settled down for now. Of course, I know the peace is just temporary, but at least we managed to clarify a lot of issues.

Between me and DBF all is still too good to be true ;) It doesn't mean everything is obvious, I forgot how much different our cultural and social backgrounds are, but at least at the moment we are really good at talking and solving problems before they arise. I guess it's a good thing, but I'm still really cautious.

I flunked awfully at my Lent goals, but decided that home-made cake is so good at making atmosphere at home better, that the goal is not as important. I gained some weight back, but not very much and when things settle down, I am going to go back to dieting.

Weekends

I have my home back for myself only :) It feels very empty still and definitely different than it used to be, but I guess I'm going to get used to it soon. I decided to keep it for myself only until my new DBF is ready to move in. But even then, we're going to make a lot of changes. I like changes.

As you can guess things with DBF are going well at the moment. Actually almost too good to be true, I feel so different than in all those years. The kids are so different and I can afford being myself with them around which is a huge change. I could never imagine than being myself may ever feel strange, but it does :) Anyway I'm happy and that's all that counts at the moment. I am still kinda waititng for the other shoe to drop, though, but maybe I'm just overreacting at the moment.

DD is coping with all the changes quite well, she just cries much more often than before, but I hope this is going to get better soon too. She adores the DBF's kids which helps a lot I guess. In general it helps a lot that we have known each other for quite a time (DBF is DD's godfather) so it doesn't feel as new. On the other hand it feels quite funny - to fall in love with DD's godfather ;)

I am also planning to come back to having hobbies, I've already dug out my stitching things :)
